First Week of School

Any families new to our area (or from the former Beattie School of the Arts) should ensure they come to register at the school starting August 29th. Please bring two pieces of identification to show your address (BC hydro bill and driver's license for example) and please bring your child's care card and birth certificate. Please come anytime after 10:30 am.

The first day of school is TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 6th. Doors will open at 10:20 and school will begin at 10:30. All children should report to the gym. On WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 7th, all children will report back to their last year's teacher's classroom again and then we will spend Wednesday reviewing school beliefs and reminding children about our school Code of Conduct.

Our hope as a staff is to finalize class placements as soon as we can. Enrolment dictates whether we can go ahead and post the classes or we need to wait for more staffing if enrolment has increased over the summer months and we can no longer accommodate the demand with the present number of classrooms. Attendance on Tuesday Sept. 6 and Wednesday Sept. 7 is very important for us. I will be in touch via synervoice so all will know when the new class lists will be posted and when we can start in our new divisions.
